Architecture with a Detour: Carlos Bedoya
Carlos Bedoya, founding partner of Mexico City-based architecture firm Productora, will present “Architecture with a Detour” as part of the 2016-17 ISU Department of Architecture Lecture Series. His presentation is free and open to the public.
Bedoya will look at Productora’s work “through a set of architectural variables as a means to tease out the practice’s engagement not with solving problems per se, but with engaging the inherent ‘difficulty’ of architecture as a productive element of design,” he said.
“Following Josef Maria Rilke’s writings, a key question of Productora’s research has been to ask how design should not only attempt to resolve difficulties, but to create architecture as difficulty: architecture imagined as a sort of detour.”
